The Iowa field-hockey team has moved up 13 spots in the latest National Field Hockey Coaches Association rankings to No. 7 this week.

The Hawkeyes were preseason No. 20, and they moved up this week after defeating No. 11 Wake Forrest and No. 6 Virginia. Iowa’s only loss of the season came to then-No. 2 North Carolina two weeks ago.

No. 3 Maryland, Penn State (No. 6), Northwestern (No. 13), and No. 19 Michigan State represent the Big Ten in the poll.

The Black and Gold will be back in action this weekend, when they take on California-Davis, Pacific, and No. 12 Stanford this weekend.

Forward Natalie Cafone has been named offensive Big Ten Player of the Week. The Fairfield, New Jersey, native scored a hat trick in the Hawks’ 4-3 win over Virginia on Sept. 4.
